2018/19 (RDC Deventer, #netherlands)??23 goals ?? 6 assists in only 9 games! (still counting)
2017/18 (SBV Excelsior, #netherlands) ??12 goals ??season total.
2016/17 (KAA Gent, #belgium)??18 goals ??12 assists in 20 games.
The above is a statistical summation based on hard indisputable facts of figures clocked by a certain 21-year old Nigerian girl who has been dimmed “not good enough” for a #superfalcons team that was unable to register a single shot at goal in the entire 90mins against #china! .
If the prerequisites to earning a call-up to any serious #nationalteam is 1- Citizenship(by birth or naturalisation). 2-Willingness 3- Form..then, it’s hard to see which of the above 3 criteria this highly technical #deventer forward has been judged by! Other myopic arguments tabled by cynics to back her exclusion is her “size”, yet, one wonders how the #koreans managed to scoop the #fifa U-17 & U-20 trophies.The #asians are apparently 1 of the most diminutive, yet, they rule the female game globally! Clearly, & unfairly so, Sophia is a victim of the pigment of her skin!
Adopted into a #nigerian family from childhood, Sophia is a victim of the powers that be in the in the #female n/team. Our sources close to the team reliably gathered how such discriminatory remarks as “that oyinbo is not part of us” has been uttered by even the local coaches! It’s quite absurd how we colored people are always eager to point fingers at the #caucasians as #racist, while we are even more guilty of such inhumane tendencies.
The hiring of Dennerby as Manager ignited hope, it promised a new era in the offing, Sadly, the #swede is clearly another coward desperately avoiding “stepping on toes” with a view to securing his job! This isn’t a sentimental post to favor this young lady as the same gesture had in the past been extended by SNG to such players as Nwakaeme, Onyekuru, Osigwe etc when it was obvious merit isn’t readily rewarded by the crew. Courtney Dike is another shocking exclusion. Falcons will remain mediocre until sentiments are expunged!
